Born in Bermuda and raised in the Caribbean, Mishka is a traveler and a sailor at heart. A free spirit, whose lyrics melodies and grooves, are reflections of the roots and culture in which he grew, Mishka's music is Caribbean at the core, and yet it's an eclectic sound that contains many elements and genres. From bass heavy roots reggae, to mellow acoustic ballads, songs of love, songs of social justice and consciousness, you have to hear for yourself and experience the music. Mishka’s new release, the “Ocean Is My Potion” EP, is a journey back to his musical roots. Like Mishka himself, the album is imprinted with the sounds and emotions of the islands, with influences that range from the heavy bass of Reggae to the gulf and western stylings of Jimmy Buffett. Mishka's journey has taken him full circle, from an independent singer songwriter, then signed to big record labels like Creation and Sony, through the bright lights of Hollywood working with Matthew McConaughey and his jk livin label and finally right back home, where he is at his best, in the Islands, creating his own brand of music, in total artistic control of his songs and his life. Mishka, who recently toured over 40 North American venues with Maui born Female Hawaiian Superstar Anuhea has performed with a wide cross-section of top acts including Dirty Heads, Michael Franti, Matisyahu, John Brown's Body, Burning Spear, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Luciano, Xavier Rudd, Sly and Robbie, The Roots, The Cat Empire, Gregory Isaacs, Donovan Frankenreiter, Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown & many more. Mishka has released four full length albums to date including the eponymous Mishka in 1999, One Tree in 2005, Above the Bones in 2009, and Talk About in 2010 all of which have received critical acclaim around the world. Mishka's releases have charted around the globe including his last three releases reaching the #1 spot on Billboard Magazine's Reggae chart. Mishka continues to tour extensively both solo and with his band playing clubs, theaters, and festivals all over America, Canada, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Japan.
